3 Quick Kitchen Revamping Ideas

Upgrading and renovating your home is always a pricey thing to think about but you can make small changes every now and again when you can afford it, and they all add up to result in a gorgeous home that’s full of your own personality. Here are 3 tips to help you upgrade your kitchen for less. 1. Add Plants
This is my favourite tip for almost any room in a home that needs a little update! Adding faux or fresh plants and flowers really lift any room. And, as a bonus, you can get creative with your plant pots. By adding some materials like copper and silver-coloured plant pots you can really add some Scandi-cool vibes to your kitchen. I love cacti, succulents, and spider plants! 2. Fresh Utensils & Appliances Scour homeware websites and supermarkets for discounted and sale home appliances or just invest in a fresh toaster and kettle set and you’ll be surprised what £100 worth of new gadgets can do to a kitchen. Forget about that expensive renovation and just focus on small additions and remember to keep them clean. Everything looks better after a good clean, too! Plus, if you’ve got some manky wooden spoons and a melted spatula sitting in a jar next to your stove then it’s bound to look a bit naff, pick some new new spoons for a couple of pounds next time you’re in a homeware store and your whole kitchen will be instantly lifted! 3. Upgrade Your Metallics  Something small that can really lift a kitchen is the addition of some new metallic elements as they’re super shiny and will make your entire kitchen look like new! The easiest way to do this is to upgrade your cupboard handles if they’re metal and also your kitchen taps! You can pick up some new taps for between £100-175 from an online store such as Superbath who stock affordable and quality brands like Grohe. For a couple of weeks saving (and a few lew cocktails on a Friday night), you could have a super swish new kitchen taps and a fresh looking sink! Once you’ve scrubbed up your sink with some metal cleaner and added some sparkle, it’ll be as good as new. Obviously, if you know a kitchen fitter or a plumber that will do you some mates rates on the fitting that would save you, even more, pennies!

Illuminate Your Life: Lighting Not Paint

Our homes are a reflection of who we really are. From the books we display on our shelves to the pictures we hang on the wall, it all tells the story!  With a focus on redecorating normally being aimed more at the colour schemes of our walls, it’s time you ditched the feature walls and took things back to basics! As you probably know, I love the Scandinavian theme. I’ve popped a post up all about it here and here.

2017 Scandi Bedroom Inspiration

If there’s an area of the home where we can really let our imaginations run wild, it’s in the bedroom. Whilst kitchens require a touch of functionalism, and living rooms usually have a television or fireplace as their focal point, our bedrooms are our most privates places, and offer us a huge chance to try some interesting design schemes. Obviously, my favourite style is minimal and Scandi! A quick check on Pinterest reveals how I’m usually drawn towards a modern and contemporary feel that has enough quirkiness and individuality to embrace some more unconventional trends. (I love Liz’s home board! Check out mine here.)

New year, new you, right? If one of your goals for this year is to be more organised them I’ve got a few tips for you.

Obviously, these tips can transfer to whatever you want to organise! For me, it’s my kitchen cupboards next. If someone could buy me a spice rack, I’d love you forever.

Why Mis-Matched Christmas Trees Rock

I’ve always thought that mismatched, crazy Christmas trees have so much more personality that perfect decorated, stuck to a colour theme trees. This post is short and sweet today but I just had to share the cutest Harrods Christmas decorations that I’ve added to my tree this year. I mean, how cute is Hugh the bear in ornament form? I’m also 100% obsessed with the sparkly tartan beauty and the purple, ivory and gold tear drop shaped bauble.

10 Winter Beauty & Interiors Wishes

Winter is well and truly here and our minimalist bedroom can feel a little ‘cold’ as we haven’t quite finished our decorating and styling in there. I’ve taken the opportunity to have a little online shop around and pick some pieces that I’d like to add!

First up, the Miss Etoile Closed Eyes Cushion is super cute and would add some personality to the room. Some more personality-adders are prints and we don’t have any yet up in our room. This Wimbledon Print and Michelle Collins Mountain Print, both from John Lewis are so pretty, I love the colours.

How To Incorporate Floor Lamps Into Your Living Area

Interior design and decorating my home is one of my favourite things to spend money on. Of course, I love beauty and shopping for clothes but you’ll probably more likely see me buying a fresh and fancy cushion than a new blusher!

I picked up this Homebase Chrome Ball Floor Lamp the other week to add yet another light source into my living area in the flat. We already have a large black and chrome oversized lamp in the opposite corner and usually just have the two of them on and this gives a really nice light to the room as opposed to having the ‘big’ light on. For just under £30 I thought this pretty Homebase number was super good value and it looks much more expensive than it actually is. I love a bargain! It’s sitting pretty next to my minimalist frame wall and my plant stand which usually houses fresh flowers (when I remember to buy them!).
